NEW! Nighttime Photography featuring GardenFest of Lights | January 4 IN-PERSON

Photographing GardenFest lights after dark can be a challenge. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll take photos of the GardenFest exhibit’s many lighted displays at dusk, after sunset, and in fully dark conditions. By participating in this class with professional photographer, Tom Hennessy, you’ll gain nighttime photography skills that will help you photograph other illuminated objects and landscapes at the Garden and beyond such as light displays, city skylines, moonlit evenings and more! Students should bring their own DSLR camera.
